of the way the u.s. interacts with other countries. it's become a significant part of u.s. diplomacy and what we try to get governments to do in terms of the way they treat their own people. during the iranian revolution, the iranian green revolution in 2009, those big street protests against ahmadinejad, remember that summer of big protests there? remember how the u.s. press called that the twitter revolution? twitter was not the reason those protests happened in iran that summer, but it did turn out to be an important tool that activists and regular iranians used to communicate to each other about that giant protest movement that was so threatening to the government there. when twitter was planning a totally unrelated shutdown for technical reasons around the time of those big protests in iran, the u.s. government intervened and asked the company to please delay that planned outage to another time when it would not crimp iranians' ability to use that tool. and twitter agreed. twitter did delay that planned service outage. with this shutdown of the whole internet in all of syria today, it's
and recent cnn/rnc polling shows more than 2 in 3 support tax hikes for the wealthy. u.s. a reality that republicans will grapple with from now until new year's day. joining me, congressman tom cole from oklahoma. a republican. thank you for joining us. >> thank you. >> your proposal, republican lawmakers should agree with democrats, exstand the tax breaks for those making $250,000 or less, before the end fortunate year, deal with the tax rates for the wealthiest later. an idea that a lot of republicans are resisting. what kind of pushback are you getting? >> the reaction is mixed. some support it. some don't. some have more questions about it. but, look, the issue really is pretty simple. i don't believe in raising tax rates on anybody. i think it's bad for the economy. bad for job creations. ultimately by slowing down growth cuts revenue, and the president needs to come to the table with real spending restraint and real, frankly, entitlement reform. having said that, if we agree taxes shouldn't go up on 98% of the people, shouldn't we take that now and get that set aside, make sur
history of debt in the u.s.; and h.i.v. infections in young people. but first, the other news of the day, here's hari sreenivasan. >> sreenivasan: wall street lost ground today over renewed concerns that deficit talks in washington are not making progress. the dow jones industrial average was down 89 points to close at 12,878. the nasdaq fell nine points to close below 2968. earlier, there were more signs of a recovery home prices went up in most major u.s. cities by 3% in september compared to a year ago. america's ambassador to the u.n. failed to mollify senate critics today on the attack at the u.s. consulate in benghazi, libya. susan rice met with republican senators who've criticized her for saying-- five days after the attack-- that anti-american protests were to blame. in fact, u.s. officials already knew it was a terrorist strike. today, rice blamed faulty intelligence. but senator lindsey graham said he was unimpressed. bottom line, i'm more disturbed now than i was before that the 16 september explanation about how four americans died in benghazi libya by ambassador rice i thin
and now that is not going to happen. we will still have u.s. troops in afghanistan one year from now two years from now, five years from now. where is the press? obviously, these are not issues that the people who run on these programs today -- >> why not? >> because they do not draw an audience. what draws an audience is charlie sheen. what draws an audience is people yelling at each other. it is not enough to say these issues are important. if we actually -- i know it sounds totally idealistic, but when you and i became journalists as young men, we actually believed that we were entering, really, a special, chosen profession that meant something to a democracy. >> we called it a calling. >> a calling, exactly. >> exactly. word of honor, i never thought i was going to get rich as a journalist. you do not go into journalism to become wealthy. >> the changes we are talking about, you have already touched upon the affect it has on our society, on the business itself. value systems change. i am not saying we can ever return to the good old days. that is done, but what worries me is whether
significant emphasis. for example, in 2010, the pentagon set up this u.s. cybercommand and the eu has a similar organization. the uk has the same thing. they have a cybersecurity operations center and this is the british equivalent in this area. let's just go through some of the terminology. i wanted to make sure that we have some particular knowledge about things. as i go through these special events, the backdoor is an overlooked entry into a network. it allows a hacker or someone were someone who was not authorized to be in there to get in with a password -- without a password. this is where you have a program that becomes a robot of the person on the outside. cookies are a friend when we are trying to order something. i'm going to give you some examples as we go. now where is malicious software. malware can be a virus 40 warm. we also have the concept where did these e-mails that are alluring you to respond. you might even respond to such a little ad. spearfishing is trying to get you to respond and it is that is the concept that it is targeted at you. because you have access to s
for themselves. but isn't there a danger in having a political appointee like a u.s. ambassador, in a sense, freelancing, when critical material is concerned. >> i don't think so, i think ambassador rice could have easily said we may have had an organized terrorist group that may have had affiliated with al-qaeda behind the attack in benghazi. i don't think it would have been compromising any sensitive information. i think the administration has used that as an excuse, and it really -- you know, america has a lot of overclassifying, that is one reason there are adults that are supposed to be able to handle this. and i don't think it would have been that difficult for her to somewhat give a more nuance discussion of what really transpired in benghazi. >> fran, you dealt with classified and unclassified talking points when you served at the white house, do you agree with rueul? >> well, those that drafted these talking points, perhaps the intelligence community will prepare the individual going out on the sunday show, especially if they're doing multiple shows, to understand where the lines h
and on the web. you think about it, virtually every major publication outside of the u.s. has a section on its website that is devoted to this election. that's hard for us in the states to have any comparison to. i mean, we just don't devote that kind of attention in general to another country's political contest. in fact, the times here in london told us that the u.s. election subject is the most clicked in the past month other than their home page and views of it have increased by 500% since august. across the world tonight there will be watch parties. that's pretty impressive considering that when polls close in america it will be well after midnight. here it will be just about midnight. especially at u.s. embassies people will be watching. one british analyst told us it is possible as many brits will be watching these results as watched the results of their own elections. lynn. >> michelle, interesting. thanks so much. >>> the presidential election isn't the only thing happening today. there are some very close sen 2345i9 races happening across the country. >> reporter: the power struggle

, senator lieberman has pointed to the iranians as retaliating against the u.s. banks for the stuxnet attack that i will talk about momentarily. and our power grid. what is the risk? well, one is that terrorists want to break into our power grid. those of you that have lived a few days without power, as mark and i did in d.c. when a few trees knocked down our power lines, well, there are already, according to a number of the experts, foreign nation states that are in our networks, in the power system. the operation aurora, a few years ago, proved that a cyber attack can bring down the power grid with a cyber attack on one of the systems causing it to literally shake itself to death. and if you've noticed, you can't go to wal-mart and pull these power systems off the shelves. it takes a few months to get them back. a few months without the systems could be a $700 billion impact. the intelligence community in the u.s., they are afraid, too. they warned that already they should -- nation states are in our power grid. as you've already heard from john harrington, for the first time that i recall
to equip the new immigrants with the skills they need to make it in the u.s.. for example as richard mentioned by making sure that they and their children receive effective english language instruction. we tend to talk a lot about what to do about illegal immigrants who are already here whether to provide them with what some people call the legalization and other people call amnesty and on both sides lot of the arguments or moral. one group suggesting legalization would erode the rule will fall and another saying it's the status quo that undermines the rule of law and decides that he man to lead to a humanitarian duty to regulate the status of the people who come here over the last few decades. well, my own reading of the polls is that the answer is that people give to a lot of questions depend a lot on the wording of the question which suggests to me the polls are useful for identifying some impulses that are strong in the public and not so much for finding specific policies. the impression i have is that most people are not opposing the principal to allowing people who've been here
whatsoever with congress on either side. u.s. virtually no interaction with members of congress. wow. >> let me, mark, let me just add, first of all, i don't agree with anything charlie just said. now, i agree with everything charlie just said. the key may be whether the president shows decisive leadership. now, i don't know what you all think they're i don't know what charlie thinks. i don't think that decisive leadership necessary is what is shown a lot of the time in the first term. it's not that he didn't show any leadership. he staked out general positions, suggestions, ideas, philosophies, the health care reform. but he didn't get his hands really dirty. remember the public option fight we had. where was the president? if you send it to me, i'll sign it. you know, he let nancy pelosi take the lead on the public option. and on a lot of things, you know, we knew where he stood. he didn't twist arms. he just didn't seem to get involved in the details. is he going to do that now? if he does that, easy going to just come his idea of well, i've got a second term, we picked up seats and since
